As Americans, we’re used to getting things quickly. We decide we want a latte; we go through a drive-thru, we want a new pair of jeans, we head to Amazon Prime or the nearest Target store. With a same day CEREC crown, you can restore a damaged tooth in just one, quick dental appointment at Adams Dental Group.
Dental crowns are essentially tooth-shaped and colored caps that cover the tooth and restore the health and look of a tooth. If a tooth is small or discolored, a crown will correct the look of a tooth in a natural way.
Up until recently, the process for getting a traditional crown has been time-consuming and requires multiple trips to the dentist office. Crowns are implemented for a variety of reasons and are one of the most common dental procedures that dentists perform. According to WebMD, dental crowns are caps that are tooth-shaped and restore the appearance of a tooth to help protect a weak tooth, restore a broken tooth, make a cosmetic modification, and more.
In the traditional crown method, a temporary crown is created for the patient to wear for a few weeks while a permanent crown is sent off to a lab to be created. The dental office will assess the tooth in need of a crown, and the surrounding area, and take impressions with paste to make sure the tooth will be the correct size for the patient’s mouth and bite. Unfortunately, after the impressions are taken, patients will have to wait multiple days or weeks for the crown to be created. In the meantime, patients are usually given a temporary crown to wear while the permanent one is being formed. This process leads to multiple trips to the dentist office.
With the traditional crown, there are multiple options for materials, such as:
CEREC crowns are very similar to the traditional crown but differ in the fact that they can be implanted within a single day (have your heard of same day crowns?) – eliminating multiple appointments, cost, and time needed off work for patients. With this advancement in technology, CEREC crowns are made within only one dentist visit, and eliminate the need for a temporary crown. CEREC crowns are also known as chair side crowns, more specifically, the acronym stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.”
Similar to traditional crowns, a dentist office will need to take impressions of the tooth, but now will use an oral camera to obtain a 3D image of the tooth – no more sticky impression paste. However, the core difference is that a CEREC same day CEREC crown can be created on site within as little as 15 minutes, restoring your life, and mouth function, back to normal within just a few minutes.
CEREC crowns also provide an advantage in appearance; a same day CEREC crown look more realistic and are created out of strong ceramic, providing a closer fit and look to a real tooth. CEREC crowns are also highly durable and are known to last as long as 15 years with good dental hygiene.
